I almost passed on this one. I’ve been keeping my reading much more balanced these days, and given our daughter should arrive any day now *hint* *hint*, I have serious doubts about any spring reading plans. But there is that long Tolkien series that I’m kicking off in May, and I’m already diving into the reading for that. And I’ve got a couple books, and there are three books coming out in May, that I’m really excited about. I start with those, then the Tolkien. The list below doesn’t include The Hobbit and The Fellowship, that I’ve already read and reread, respectively, and it doesn’t include Author of the Century and A Hobbit, A Wardrobe, and a Great War, which I hope to find the time to reread, or The Inklings and King Arthur, which I started yesterday.
